9 days : In Oldest/Newest posts

To be honest, I did not think people used those features.

A "Last" option has been added to some sections. I will look at other options going forward.

9 days : In How do you make fog?

With q3tourney5, there is a black box around the level with a skybox on top and the fog brush is inside the black box. Try:
\devmap q3tourney5
Then:
\noclip ; r_showtris 1
You will be able to see the outlines of the polygons and how the map was constructed without a decompile.

18 days : In How do you make fog?

Suggest making a test map. Fog (from memory) needs to be surround on all sides except one. For example, on a test map, make a box pit and then add a brush with the fog texture in that pit.

fKd's post on this thread is very helpful and backs up the one plane visible issue. https://www.quake3wo...?f=10&t=52043

43 days : In New server and change to downloads

The server has been moved to a new location and ..::LvL gets to live for a while longer yet!

This is thanks to the ongoing support of people that have donated over the years, so huge thanks to all that have through the donation page - https://lvlworld.com/donate

With this server change, there has also been a code change to the way the downloads happen. This has been to prevent a direct link loop-hole that someone (or a few people) found and were exploiting.

The new download code should be very solid, but if people find issues, please advise so the code can be corrected as soon as possible.

As a side note for the people that use the ..::LvL Android app, the update notifications no longer work. This will be corrected in a future release. This was due to Google stopping support for Google Cloud Messages and forcing everyone to a new system. I simply have not had the time to make these changes yet. No other code changes have been needed for the application, so this was a low priority.

57 days : In ..::LvL website layout feedback

@All - If you are signed in and on a PC / Desktop, you can now see who has agreed or disagreed with a members comment. Just mouse over the corresponding button to see who is agreeing or disagreeing with the comment.

This feature will be a little weird on the ..::LvL App version or mobile devices as it relies on a mouse. Do not expect "ease of use" on these formats.

@HelterSkeleton : All good ideas, just need to work out how and when to implement.

Re: Favourites - Would an extension of the bookmarks be suitable? For example, adding the options to mark as a private, favourite, add notes, played, will play and then the option to filter based on these flags be suitable?

Re: Votes - A little tricky, but doable to add "blind" voting options. I like the idea of transparency, but with some of the recent activity I have seen on the site, I am starting to sway back to the idea of an anonymous vote option. If introduced, it will require a level reputation to be enabled.

Re: Page numbers for browse, search, listing options - again, this is doable and I can see the benefit of it on listings that do not change often (list of CTF maps) and no benefit on other listings (like recent downloads). It may be worth investing some time on this one on certain sections.

To counter the abuse to member comments by disgruntled others, I'm looking at adding some transparency there as well.

59 days : In Member profile and map release inconsistencies

Thanks gooball, both have been updated.

60 days : In Member profile and map release inconsistencies

That count is really a technical hack as the database structure was never designed to link a map author to a member account.

It has been corrected for you. Feel welcome to report anything else you notice as well.
